Out actor Sean Hayes will return to network television this fall.

“I am excited to confirm & announce that I am joining the cast of @TheMillersCBS on @CBS this fall,” Hayes tweeted to his more than 229,000 followers on Tuesday.

According to Variety, Hayes will play Kip Withers, Carol Miller's (played by Margo Martindale) new best friend.

Series creator Greg Garcia said he was excited about the addition.

“After years of being a fan and hearing from others how wonderful he is to work with, I couldn't be more excited about Sean Hayes joining The Millers,” Garcia said. “The thought of he and Margo Martindale as BFF's makes me smile every time I think about it. We're only just getting started, and writing this season's stories has been a blast.”

Hayes' character will be introduced during the comedy's October 30 second season premiere.

Hayes is best known for playing Jack McFarland for eight seasons on the hit NBC sitcom Will & Grace. He starred opposite Linda Lavin in the short-lived NBC comedy Sean Saves the World.
